Abstract:

In this monograph the author describes the United States Air Force resistance to the passage of international conventions treaties and the general impact that Air Force opposition had on the development of international law regarding outer space. International outer space law, like other international law, is created by court decisions international and domestic, passage negotiation and ratification of international treaties or conventions, and commonly accepted practices of nations, which in turn become customs. In addition, the publications by scholars of international outer space law have had a substantial impact on the evolution of this body of law.
